Real estate taxes are not always reported on a 1098, and when they are, different lenders use different boxes.
If the real estate tax, (property tax) is reported on the 1098, enter that amount in the last box on that screen. If not, leave the box blank.
Box 6 is where the lender reports "Points" paid.
When you enter the 1098, you should get to a screen that asks "Did you take out this loan in 2016?" If the answer is "Yes", the next screen allows you to report the points. If "No", the points are not entered.

If you did pay property taxes, be sure to enter that amount under:

Use your tax bill receipt, or call the local assessor's office if you need to find out what you paid in 2016.
